Last week Ariana Grande said at an event "thanks for coming to my quinceanera!" People thought it meant that she's actually part Latino. She was just joking. She is 100% Italian on both sides going back to great grandparents. Here is her family tree to the best of my knowledge.

Her mother is Joan Marguerite Grande born 1957 in Brooklyn, New York. Her biological father is Edward Charles Butera born 1958. Her half brother is Frank James Marchioni born 1983. Frank's father is Victor Marchioni.

Ariana Grande's maternal grandparents are Frank Anthony Grande born in New York 1923-2014 and Marjorie Damico Grande born in New York 1925. Her maternal great grandparents are Antonio Grande born in Italy 1898-1967, Filomena "Phyllis" Lavenditti Grande born in Italy 1897-1984, John Viovanni Damico born in Italy 1880-1960 and Felomina "Minnie" Gigante Damico born in Italy 1890-1973. Below is the obituary for Filomena Gigante Damico.

"DAMICO Filomena. Beloved wife of the late John. Devoted mother of Filomena Dondiego, Caroline Setteducato and Marjorie Grande. Also 4 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. Reposing SCARPACI CHAPELS. 1401 86 St. until Wednesday. 9 A.M. Mass St. Catherine of Alexandria Church 9:30 A.M. Interment Calvary Cemetery.

"Ariana Grande's pateral grandparents are Anthony Vincent Charles Butera 1927-2001 and Florence Citrano Butera born 1933. Below is Anthony Butera's obituary.

Ariana Grande's paternal great grandparents are Carlos "Charles" Antonio Butera born in New Jersey 1899-1984 and Marie "Mary" Passalaqua Butera born in Italy 1901-1958. Currently I don't know the parents of Florence Citrano. One census states she's an American citizen born abroad and orphaned. I'm not 100% on that info. I'll update when I'm more positive.

Ariana Grande's maternal great great grandparents are all born in Italy. Her paternal great great grandparents that I know of are all born in Italy. Ariana Grane is 100% Italian as far as I can tell.
